Croydon road closures: Here is the full list of roadworks in January and February 2018

Here’s everything you need to know so you don’t get caught out in the traffic.

Croydon Council has announced when and where roads will be closed in the borough for the rest of this month and throughout February.

Following the sudden closure of Streatham High Road due to emergency sewer repair works which could last up to two week, we have broken down the council’s current planned roadworks.

A full list of closures for November, going into December, is available on the council’s website.

Residents who live in the homes around the road closure are usually sent letters from the council, but for those who are likely to simply be passing through, here is the full list of road closures and temporary traffic lights.

Ongoing Works

Ellesmere Drive: One-way until February 15 2018

SGN will be making Ellesmere Drive one-way for the next phase of their gas mains replacement scheme.

This work started in November 2017 and is due to finish on February 15, 2018.

A small local diversion is in place via Hilton Way, Wentworth Way and Limpsfield Road.

Stites Hill Road to February 16, 2018

SES Water are replacing a section of mains on Stites Hill Road until February 16.

The works are being carried out under a road closure from Coulsdon Road to just past Rydons Lane. Diversions will be in place.

The Crescent and Sydenham Road until January 28

Under 2-way lights on Northcote Road/Selhurst Road. Closures of The Crescent and Sydenham Road, with local diversions signed.

Lower Addiscombe Road: Tram Crossing signal modernisation until February 3, 2018

TFL are re-modernising the signals at the above location. To facilitate these works temporary signals will be installed to replicate the existing permanent set up, including the pedestrian crossing points.

During the off peak hours of 9.30am and 2.30pm one footway will be closed (at a time) with pedestrians diverted to the alternative footway via the pedestrian crossing points on either side of the works site.

Selsdon Park Road (John Ruskin College) until January 20

Due to an oil leak on a 400KV electrical cable, National Grid are having to perform an emergency repair.

To facilitate these works 2-way signals are being installed, these signals will be manually controlled from 5.30am to 7.30pm each day.

It is estimated these works will take ten days to complete, however due to the nature of emergency works this could change.

Work from Saturday, January 20

Streatham High Road: Closure from January 20 for approximately 2 weeks

Cappagh closed part of Streatham High Road in the early hours of Saturday morning (20 January) for emergency sewer repairs.

The work could take up to two weeks to complete.

Headley Drive: January 22 to February 2

SGN will be installing 2-way signals in Headley Drive (at its junction with Netley Close). These signals will be manually-controlled during peak times.

A pedestrian walkway and a crossing point will be installed.

Kenmore Road: January 24

Kier Highways, on behalf of Croydon Council, will carry out resurfacing work at the location above. On-street parking will be suspended during works hours.

Pedestrian access will not be affected.

Coulsdon Road (between 157 to 157 Coulsdon Road): January 25 to 26

Kier Highways, on behalf of Croydon Council, will be carrying out resurfacing at the location above. On-street parking will be suspended during works hours.

Pedestrian access will not be affected.

Selsdon Road (between 345 to 194 Selsdon Road): January 26

Kier Highways, on behalf of Croydon Council, will be carrying out resurfacing at the location above. On-street parking will be suspended during works hours.

Pedestrian access will not be affected.

Buttermere Gardens: January 27 to February 11

SGN will be replacing a high risk main in Buttermere Gardens at its junction with Ingleboro Drive.

These works are to take place in preparation for the carriageway resurfacing works to take place in Ingleboro Drive during the February half term.

To facilitate these works multi-way signals will be installed, parking suspensions where required. Signals will be manually controlled when required.

Brigstock Road: January 29 to February 19

As part of the improvement works at the Parchmore Road Junction the council needs to close one lane of Brigstock Road outside of Thornton Heath train station to undertake this section of the works safely.

The result of this is that westbound traffic will be diverted at the Parchmore Road Junction and return back to Brigstock Road along Melfort Road.

To ensure traffic flows freely no waiting at any time including parking will be permitted where the current single yellow line runs along Melfort Road between the junctions of Brook Road and Brigstock Road and we also need to install traffic control lights at the Brook Road / Melfort Road Junction.

Gloucester Road and Dagnall Park: January 29 to February 25

Under 2-way lights on Selhurst Road. Closures of Gloucester Road and Dagnall Park, with local diversions signed.

Warham Road: February 10 to 18

Warham Road between Violet Lane and Bramley Hill will be closed during the February half term.

The closure is required to allow for a new UKPN connection to a redevelopment. Diversions will be in place and Tfl buses are fully aware.

Brighton Road / Wyvche Grove: February 12 to 14

Thames Water will be carrying out a new connection on Brighton Road (near the junction of Wyche Grove) under 2-way signals. The signals will be manually-controlled at peak times.

Selhurst New Road: February 26 to March 25

Under 3-way lights on Selhurst Road and Willow Wood Avenue. Closure of Selhurst New Road, with local diversions signed.

Rydons Lane February 5 to June 17

Rydons Lane will then follow on February 5 to June 17. Again a closure will be in place.

Northcote Road and The Crescent: March 26

Under 3-way lights on Northcote Road and The Crescent.
